Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop ~ Cheetahs of Kilimanjaro Safaris in Disney's Animal Kingdom




Focused on the Magic
Today, I am joining in the fun of the Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop hosted by Deb at Focused on the Magic.  The theme this week is Nature, and I am sharing a photo, yet again, from Kilimanjaro Safaris.  As you may know this is one of my favorite attractions in Walt Disney World.  I was happy to capture this shot of three cheetahs resting in the shade. Much like my desire to see the lions in action along the safari someday, I would love to see the cheetahs up and roaming around. All my photos of them are of them relaxing.

Have you ever seen the movie Can't Hardly Wait?  It's like the movie of my generation (at least to me!) and there's a line in it with a foreign exchange student.. he just says "Cheetah... rrrrrrr" maybe that sounds lame but it's funny in my head!  Great pic - they are beautiful!

Last time we rode the safari right before park closing and saw a cheetah run across the grass, jump in a tree, look around and jump back down!  Our driver was freaking out saying she'd never seen that before!!  it was quite exciting!

Kilimanjaro is one of my favourites as well!  Those cheetahs may not move around a lot but they do always look they are thoroughly content with their lot in life.

You've obviously stumbled across a group of teenage cheetahs. Hard to get them moving before the sun goes down. Yell at them to clean their room or something, and they'll probably disappear pretty fast.
Nice work capturing them on camera though. I've never been that lucky.

Love it! They are always lounging when I visit as well!

Wow, what a great shot!! I love the safari!
I've yet to see more than one cheetah at a time and when I do they're a big blur darting in the opposite direction.

So cool that you got a shot of them all together. I've only seen them up walking around once, the lions, never. :)

Beautiful shot, when we are on the safari I think we only got to see 1 cheetah But I dont ever remember them laying like that -- Cool

Tami said...

That's pretty neat... as kitties, they probably sleep like 23 1/2 hrs per day, huh?  Maybe someday!  ;-)

Wow- was this with a zoom, or were you really that close?  You were lucky to get three together, even if it was lounging time!
